Scientists told how to reduce the likelihood of recurrence of cancer. Reedus

American scientists conducted a study which shows that in the US there are 15 million people who survived cancer. Now they are all in remission, but cancer recurrence is the return of malignant disease may occur even after several years.

Previous studies repeatedly demonstrated that measures to lifestyle changes such as diet and physical activity is particularly important for long-term recovery of survivors of cancer.


Energy imbalance, when energy consumption does not equal energy consumption, and metabolic changes after cancer treatment can directly affect the risk of cancer recurrence. Patients after treatment should pay more attention to their health, the scientists write.

The study found that most recovered from cancer (56%) tend to overestimate the quality of their diet, increasing the risk of energy imbalance. They report more frequent consumption of fruits, vegetables and whole grains and a lower consumption of empty calories.

The researchers analyzed data from the National survey of health and nutrition (NHANES) for 2005-2014 on 2361 survivors Arcobaleno and 23 of 114 participants who did not have cancer.

Experts analyzed data from NHANES in conjunction with information about healthy eating index, which measures adherence to the dietary recommendations, as an indicator of food quality. It turned out that the quality of the diet of people with remission has not improved over the last ten years.

In addition, the diet of people who survived cancer usually have been unbalanced, though more healthy diet than people without cancer. Despite the presence of vegetables and fruit in the diet, they are often not able to organize your meals to the level of proteins, fats and carbohydrates remained normal.

These components are extremely important that the body receives all the necessary elements for health. This is especially important for patients with chronic diseases.

how Nadezhda Babkina restores health after pneumonia

Nadezhda Babkina on May 9 will certainly perform Victory songs. This time thousands of spectators will not applaud her – we celebrate the main holiday in self-isolation mode. And Nadezhda Georgievna herself is recovering after a serious illness, therefore she saves herself – there will be concerts, but later. But “Victory Day” will certainly sound in the house of the national artist. We tell how Babkina regains her health after being discharged from the hospital.

Recall that Nadezhda Georgievna was hospitalized with pneumonia, for almost a month we were worried about her health. The treatment required the introduction of an artist into a coma, Babkina coped, doctors saved the life of Nadezhda Georgievna – and now she is already at home. The situation was very serious. Nadezhda Babkina told about the course of the disease in Let They Talk, immediately after hospitalization and computed tomography of her lungs, she was transferred to intensive care:

“About 80% of the lungs were affected … Everything covered with film and dragged on: it’s such an infection, it manifests itself very quickly and starts working …” Later, the artist found out that at some point the situation became very serious: “The question was acute at the time the kidneys stopped working. Why? Details did not tell me. Probably it was scary, there were a lot of problems with me … “

Before discharge, CT showed that lung damage, according to the singer, decreased to 40%. Now Nadezhda Georgievna is not in a Moscow apartment, but in her country house in the suburbs. Therefore, she goes to special Lapino hospital for special physiotherapeutic procedures to restore lung function and rehabilitation. At discharge, the artist was prescribed home recovery (for 20 days): pills, injections – the artist tells her colleagues what she can do herself. Doctors ordered Babkin to do breathing exercises.

Nadezhda Georgievna says that the exercises are not easy, they are dizzy after them, but the artist is not lazy: she does it every day, because it’s important for the profession to restore the lungs as soon as possible. “Since we are singing, I have light accordions (squeezed – unclenched),” Babkina communicates with her colleagues and friends over the telephone — her voice is normal.

Nadezhda Babkina walks a lot – she lives in a country house (the singer was taken to the hospital from her Moscow apartment), and she came to rehab for fresh air outside Moscow. The actress is accompanied by a nurse Allochka – now the first assistant to Nadezhda Georgievna. “A beautiful little girl, Allochka, looked after me in the hospital, as though she was young, and hands like sledgehammers — I think all four will fall down. And she dragged me. From the bed to the toilet (I couldn’t walk). And – night is not night, she just lived with me, ”Babkina got used to her nurse. And Allochka went to her house – to help recover.

She goes to physiotherapy with her son, and Assistant Allochka is always nearby at home. Civilian husband Yevgeny Gor also raises spirits – he and his Hope have been 17 years old.

“He protects me, worships!” – the artist praises her Zhenya. There is something to praise – Gore kept the defense of journalists for a month: not a single interview or comment on Babkina’s health until she wrote out. Immediately after Nadezhda’s discharge, Eugene breathed a sigh of relief, and even cut himself off for joy! The precautions for self-isolation in this family are followed very strictly. Now Babkina even before washing her hands washes: he touches his face only with clean hands.

The house has a special lamp that disinfects the air. The device for air disinfection in the rooms of Babkina was presented for an anniversary – even before the illness. Now come in handy! In March, Nadezhda Georgievna celebrated her 70th birthday; she is going to celebrate lavishly in the fall, when they are allowed to hold events. For the anniversary, the singer lost 23 kg in three and a half months: food was delivered to her ready diet. And in the hospital she dropped it again: I didn’t want to eat. Now she eats fully: as she began to recover she suddenly wanted sauerkraut.

Nadezhda Georgievna is not bored at home: the collective of her theater “Russian Song”, like all artists on self-isolation, but Babkina is engaged in current affairs, in touch with her employees. In the hospital, I didn’t communicate with anyone from friends: only with relatives, and when I got better, I watched TV. But now it receives calls and congratulations, we can say that with a second birth. Babkina says that she gave herself the command not to be afraid, to completely trust the doctors as soon as I entered the hospital: “When I looked in my eyes Shapovalenko Tatyana Vladimirov (the chief physician of the Medsi Design Bureau in Otradnoye – approx. Aut.) said that I believe you – my life is in your hands. ”

Recovery will not be quick – this artist understands, does not deny: no one knows yet – what consequences can be after an illness. But now there is more good news: according to the results of the analyzes, the doctors said that the immune system is restored.

Avoid possible foci of enemy resistance using a dense network of highways near the main route, ”the order said.

Defense Ministry declassified documents on the capture of Berlin by Soviet troops

The fighting for the liberation of Prague lasted all day on May 9th. The Ministry of Defense notes that as a result of the completion of the Prague operation, it was possible to defeat the last major Wehrmacht group on the Soviet-German front and complete the liberation of Czechoslovakia. For the entire duration of the operation, Soviet troops captured 25 thousand German soldiers and officers. More than 119 thousand participants in the enemy’s military groups disarmed, 265 tanks, 220 armored personnel carriers, 80 aircraft, other equipment and weapons, as well as food were seized.

Trump ranked meat enterprises as defense enterprises for work during a pandemic :: Business :: RBC

US President Donald Trump has equated meat and poultry processing companies with defense enterprises, which will allow not to suspend work in a pandemic. The corresponding decree is posted on the White House website.

“It is important that the beef, pork and poultry (meat and poultry) processing enterprises in the food supply chain continue to work and fulfill orders to ensure continuous protein supplies for Americans,” the document says.

According to Trump, the suspension of a number of meat processing enterprises due to the detection of coronavirus among their employees can undermine the “critical infrastructure” during the US emergency regime.

He cited the example that the closure of one large beef processing enterprise could result in the loss of more than 10 million servings of meat in one day.

Farmers fear the third consecutive drought summer

Dusseldorf The worried look of the farmers goes up and then down these days. For several weeks there have been hardly any rain clouds in the sky, which means that the ground is becoming increasingly dry. Memories come back to the years 2018 and 2019, when it was raining too little and the harvest of cereals and rapeseed was far below average. Now there is growing fear that it could happen in 2020.

“If it stays that dry, it could be another very difficult year for German agriculture,” says Joachim Rukwied, President of the German Farmers’ Association. “A third year of drought would hit many of our farms even harder than the last.”

2020 hadn’t started badly. “From January to mid-March we had even more rain than usual,” says farmer Till Bredtmann, who runs a farm in Velbert in North Rhine-Westphalia, “but it has been dry since March 16”. According to calculations by the German Weather Service (DWD), less than ten liters per square meter of precipitation fell from March 14 to April 18 in many places.

Tobias Fuchs from the DWD told the Tagesschau that only about ten percent of the normal rainfall fell in April. In addition, the floors were also dried out by the strong wind.

This brings back memories of the past problem years. However, the water reservoirs in the soil were well filled last winter, the DWD says. Farmer Bredtmann also says: “I don’t see any catastrophe yet, but if it stays dry longer, it will be difficult”. The next few weeks are crucial for whether the drought will become a tangible problem, the experts agree.

It is not so easy to answer whom the weather affects and to what extent. The basic nature and water retention of the soil play a major role in the resilience of the cultivation. Another key question is which products are sown and harvested. For example, grasses for fodder cultivation are very susceptible to prolonged drought.

During the 2018 drought, it became clear that cereals and rapeseed suffered significantly, while asparagus harvests were stable and fruit was even better than average.

Demanding more commitment to climate protection

Nevertheless, the current dry weather reflexively raises two questions. First, is there another year of drought in 2020? The honest answer is: Nobody can say that exactly. The DWD writes on its homepage: “It is not yet possible to assess whether May will bring more precipitation after what is likely to be a very dry April.” To be prepared in an emergency, farmers can take out drought insurance, the value added tax of which has been reduced retrospectively from January 1, 2020 from 19 to 0.3 percent of the sum insured.

The second question is: Are the dry periods a sign of climate change? A clear answer is not possible here either. Climate change makes extreme weather conditions more likely, according to the DWD. However, it is difficult to prove whether a specific event can be attributed to this. Farmer Bredtmann states: “There has been a lot of dry summer in April and May in recent years”

German farmers are concerned about drought

The farmers’ association and the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture still agree that again more needs to be done for climate protection. Farmer President Rukwied says: “As farmers, we are increasingly dealing with extreme weather conditions. It would be unwise to put climate protection on the back burner, even if the focus is now on dealing with the corona pandemic “.

It is clear that agriculture itself also has a role to play. The ministry speaks of the farmers as “victims and participants” of the climate crisis and refers to a ten-point plan to combat the problem with measures to reduce CO2. The reform of EU agricultural subsidies should also have the right steering effect towards more environmentally sustainable agriculture. An agreement in Brussels on how this could look exactly is far from in sight.

Farmer Till Bredtmann, who has been practicing organic farming for 35 years, draws attention to another problem: “Consumers demand this, but in practice it looks different, because most people just want the cheapest possible food.”

global wine sales plummet due to pandemic

Published on :

The global wine trade has been hit hard by the Covid-19. Italy, Spain and France, which together export more than half of the wine produced on the planet, have seen their sales collapse due to the closure of cafes, hotels and restaurants.

In the Bordeaux region, this 2019 vintage is sometimes compared to that of 1929, a vintage of the century! Beyond this somewhat mercantile comparison, the question arises: will this superb wine, by its structure and harmony, have a bitter taste because of the pandemic?

A sharp drop in sales

According to data from the International Organization of Vine and Wine (OIV), the wine world produced 260 million hectoliters of wine last year, a drop of 12% compared to 2018. Italy, France and Spain account for half of world wine production. These three countries also export the most. But due to containment measures around the world to stem the spread of the Covid-19, their sales have plummeted. The closure of cafes, bars, restaurants and hotels has led to a sharp drop in consumption, linked in addition to the radical suppression of the tourist industry. ” It is estimated that in Europe, the closure of this distribution channel could lead to a 35% reduction in sales volume. And it could reach more than 50% loss in terms of sales value “Said Pau Roca, director general of the OIV, in an interview with RFI.

On the other hand, we are seeing an increase in sales in the mass distribution, namely in supermarkets or neighborhood grocery stores. Sales intended for domestic consumption. Would the Covid-19 have changed consumption patterns? Not so fast. ” This consumption does not compensate for losses from CHR circuits [ndlr : cafés-hôtels-restaurants]. The customer has less choice, some brands are represented, but not others. Large retailers also exert greater pressure on prices, producers earn less margins “, Indicates the director general of the OIV.

With that, online sales have increased slightly, too. Bottles ordered directly from a producer or on platforms dedicated to the wine trade, but which to reach a consumer (or at least at their door) need well-established logistics, including deliverers. From this point of view, ” Internet demand has proven to be higher than the logistical possibilities ready to satisfy it “, He notes.

10 million hectoliters of unsold goods in Europe

After the increase in customs taxes on French wines (but also Spanish and German), taxes imposed by Donald Trump in retaliation for subsidies to Airbus, the pandemic is suffocating producers. The stock of unsold French wines is estimated at three million hectoliters. With Spanish and Italian wines, more than 10 million hectoliters in Europe could be distilled before the end of summer. Among these unsold items, there are also high-end wines. The French, Italian and Spanish wine cooperatives have asked Brussels to provide for a storage measure for these wines, the marketing of which may be postponed without weighing on the markets.

Climate change and biodiversity at the heart of the reflection

Viticulture will come out, sigh the winemakers. As she has done whenever she has been threatened by a crisis. But the overwhelming experience of this new coronavirus urgently raises questions about climate change and the imbalance of biodiversity. ” Economically, the Second World War cost winegrowers the loss of three years of work. With regard to the Covid-19 crisis, the World Bank puts forward figures comparable to the post-war situation. All sectors of the economy will no doubt need a new Marshall Plan before they can restart. Support for the wine sector from governments will be equally essential “Concludes Pau Roca.

WHe’s buying fruits and vegetables in the supermarket or on the market these days is often not astonished: a cauliflower quickly costs 3.29 euros, the kilo of peppers sometimes 7 euros. And in the orange net for 1.99 euros, in which four or five fruits were recently stuck, suddenly only three are lost. After the empty shelves, there is now the next corona effect: The prices for fresh food are increasing noticeably.

The figures from the Agricultural Market Information Society (AMI) show that these are not individual outliers. In the four weeks between March 23 and April 19, the average price per kilo for apples was 23 percent higher than in the same period last year. The increase was 25 percent for oranges and almost 29 percent for grapes. Red peppers rose by 46 percent, broccoli by 56 percent.

Michael Käfer wants to bring delicatessen to retirement homes

Munich An employee once called his boss Michael Käfer the “Chief Emotional Officer”. The delicatessen king is not only responsible for the salvation of his customers, he is also always concerned about the mood of his employees.

Käfer now travels a lot in its own stores. The stress there is currently particularly high for the employees there, he tells the Handelsblatt. It is unusual to work with a mask all day. It helps if the boss comes by personally.

And the trade is also going very well. Champagne and other luxury goods are less in demand, but interestingly, people are currently buying more meat and sausages.

“People currently want high-quality home-cooked food.” The order service for the home and the online shop are also growing. Käfer is expanding its range, which will also help after the crisis.

Almost all catering orders are canceled

But none of this can compensate for the losses. The caterers in Germany are among the main victims of the crisis. In March, the industry association Leca had already written in a letter to Chancellor Angela Merkel about cancellation rates of more than 90 percent. “However, due to the high level of personnel employed in event catering, this industry is not only particularly affected, but also particularly personnel-intensive.”

There is no improvement in sight, last week the ban on major events was extended to August.

There are around 900 short-time employees at Käfer. But the entrepreneur is not afraid. “I am an advocate that you have to have a healthy optimism,” says Käfer. The country has seen even worse crises, for example the wars.

His group of companies is also well prepared for a longer crisis in terms of liquidity. “We don’t have to worry about existence.” And so he is able to see the crisis as an opportunity. Some competitors will probably not last as long. He also used the time to optimize the processes. “Productivity is usually not particularly high in the service sector.”

But above all, he also developed new offers. He has already organized virtual birthday parties, for example. Guests are connected via video conference, food and drinks are delivered to everyone personally in a box.

Three-course menus for retirement homes

And from this week, Feinkost Käfer will be supplying retirement homes that have to close their kitchens because of Corona. The capacities in the kitchen of the party service in Parsdorf near Munich are large, high hygiene standards and refrigerated vehicles are available.

From breakfast to the three-course menu to coffee and cake, Käfer offers catering and holds promising discussions with several facilities. “It would be great if it became something.”

Feinkost Käfer is not only an institution in Munich. In addition to the parent company with delicatessen and fine restaurant, he runs, for example, a Oktoberfest tent, the restaurant in the Bundestag and catering for motorsport races and general meetings.

It will take a long time for business to come back completely, Käfer is convinced. “I’m already happy to be back at 50 percent at the beginning of next year.” Hardly anyone in Munich believes that the Oktoberfest will take place this year. Officially, the decision about the Oktoberfest will be made in June.

But the market could also shrink beyond that. Some companies will probably consider whether it will not continue to hold meetings and gatherings virtually in the future. “I don’t know whether the industry will ever reach 100 percent again,” says Käfer. But the entrepreneurs shouldn’t just moan now. “It is important that we think positively and are brave.”

After completing his studies, Michael Käfer opened the P1 luxury disco in Munich in 1984. Four years later he entered the business of his father Gerd and his uncle Helmut, and in 1995 took over the delicatessen and gastronomy alone.

Regional food instead of fruit from distant countries

In the beginning, the junior focused on strong expansion, an IPO and sales of 250 million euros were the goal. Not all plans worked out, from then on Käfer continued on a more moderate but sustainable growth path. Instead of flying fruits from exotic countries, regional products have been in demand for him in recent years. This trend is sustainable, says Käfer. He has now hired two sustainability specialists.

Even if the shutdown hit him hard, Käfer does not want to complain about the measures. Germany is one of the changes that can best cope with the crisis. “I have to pay a huge compliment to the welfare state,” he says, among other things, with regard to short-time working. “I understand even more that you have to pay high taxes.”
